Peace Out, New Jersey

Well, it's official: we moved out of our apartment in New Jersey.

98% of our stuff was picked up by the movers and we brought the rest in our car on our cross-country drive:

Aside from friends and coworkers, here are some things I will miss about NJ:


Wegmans and I go way back.  We were born in the same city.  I grew up with Wegmans.  And when I moved to New Jersey almost 7 years ago, there was a Wegmans waiting for me and my grocery needs.  Unfortunately, they have not expanded west of Erie, PA, so I will need to adapt.

Halo Farm ice cream.

The park I have loved running in and around for the past 2 years and 9 months.

The canal towpath I have biked and run on for the past 6.5 years.

Our favorite brunch, lunch, and dessert spot.

Peanut butter stuffed pretzel, covered in chocolate.

Sugar + Sunshine Mocha Cupcakes.

(The one on the right. But the one on the left was good too).

Small World Coffee.

Hello, California.


  1. That's a HUGE move! Wow. I have moved around to so many different places (and countries) but it still doesn't get any easier. I hope the transition goes well for you.

  2. Good luck with the move!! It's sad to leave old comforts behind, but so exciting to discover new ones :)

  3. A life without Wegmans is very difficult. I had to suffer for the first 3 months I lived in Baltimore. The view from your new apartment should help you through it though :)

  4. Ooooooooh good luck with all your moving stuff!! :)

  5. Haha, does the pup always sit like a kangaroo? That's hilarious.

    I've never had any of the things that you're going to miss, but now I feel like I need to take a trip to NJ!

  6. I have a love/hate relationship with moving. I dislike unpacking, but packing = throwing away stuff I never use and "kinda wanna keep" but usually throw it away for my own good.

    Good luck with it all (unpacking)!

  7. I would be lighting a candle for Wegman's every night. :)
